Editorial Reviews for this title:
Synopsis:

Following the logic of a dream—in which characters merge, locations change in an instant, and a locked door recurs obsessively—Strindberg’s 1902 A Dream Play is a potent mix of Freud plus Alice in Wonderland. Caryl Churchill, perhaps the most fascinating and respected female dramatist in the English-speaking world, has taken on Strindberg’s Dream in this spare and resonant adaptation.

Caryl Churchill’s singular and striking plays include Cloud Nine, Top Girls, Light Shining in Buckinghampshire, Serious Money, The Skriker, Blue Heart, Far Away, and A Number.

August Strindberg (1849–1912) wrote over 60 plays, including Miss Julie, The Father, and The Dance of Death. He is considered Sweden’s greatest author.
